Our Story

Our Story

During the early part of the Second World War, Gordon Finemore setup and established a small legal practice in Bundaberg and worked as a sole practitioner during the war. The firm grew after the war concluded, adding partners George Walters and shortly thereafter, Ian Story. Since then, Finemore, Walters & Story has worked hard to establish relationships and build strong ties in Bundaberg. Mr. Finemore and Mr. Walters retired from the practice many years ago, whilst Mr. Story retired in 1990.

In 2015 the firm acquired the practice of KJ Rennick Solicitor and have continued to operate a full time office in Mundubbera servicing the Central and North Burnett region.

From 1 April 2017 the firm also acquired the practice of Kingston and Stanton Solicitors of Childers. This exciting development means the firm now serves a wide geographic region including Woodgate, Childers, Biggenden, Gayndah, Mundubbera, Eidsvold, Monto, Mount Perry, Gin Gin and Bundaberg.
